? on GROUNDING KITS...
people say this does wonders for you car...better stereo performance..better idle...hp...etc. i've looked but don't know which kit is the best and where to get it installed. i have a fear of batteries (and after some of isacc's horror stories i'm more scared than ever). can anyone give me more info or their testimonial on their kits? thanks

i bought a set from "happies" off nc.org , it's a privately made kit of 5 4 gauge wires cut to the correct lengths for each model and they have gold ring eyelet onnectors and have protective sleeves at the ends to minimalize exposure of the lead ends... install takes ~45 min.

as for how it works, i don't notice any negative effects, truthfully nothing huge for the positive end either, the idle is more stable, acceleration if its helped is very minimal at least in my case... (maybe its cause i have a GT with 18"s and loss of torque due to quad piped exhaust) and my HID's seem to be a tad brigher and require less warm up to be at their max brightness...
there's my 0.02 on grounding kits smile

For 37dollars having a stabler item seems like a big benfit to me. From my understanding stero quality seems to have improved also.

Would this eliminate my alternator noise?


Those who knew me, knew me well.
For those who don't, can go to hell.

It could. IT will definitely have positive affects on the vehicle. Its not made to add horsepower. YOu may have better throttle response, but overall it is definitely worth it.

Supra my man, give it a shot yo. Only $37 couldn't hurt. It helps with all the groundings and whatnot. thumbsup

how does a grounding kit work? what does it hook up to for the install and how does that benefit the throttle response and the stereo, those seem like things that have no correlation in upgrades confused. if anybody can explain the concept of a grounding kit id appreciate it. thumbsup


Hey, its a celica. What else do ya need to know?

All of your electronics that are grounded go through other electronics and receives resistance. The Grounding kit grounds the battery better and your alt. better so it has direct/better grounds. Grounds are what will keep something from working. You need 2 things in order for something to work. one is voltage/power, the other is a ground. The better the ground, the better the performance. Does that help? This is just a brief not real detailed explanation.

Installed it last night.

I noticed a little difference! THe car pulls a lil harder, my lights are brighter, and my stereo seems to be louder. Worth $37 definitely. smile
